This four-song release compiles the Spanish-language versions of Nelly Furtado’s hits “Try,” “All Good Things (Come to an End),” and “En Las Manos de Dios.” The original English-language version of the single “In God’s Hands,” with its guest spot from Keith Urban, is also included. With the growing crossover between Latin and North American pop, this limited edition set is a welcome addition, and will come as a special treat for Spanish speakers who already dig the English-language versions of Furtado’s frothy dance-pop hits.
This CD reissue of a Pablo date features Frank Foster (on tenor and soprano) and Frank Wess (tenor, flute and alto) at their best. They perform three Wess originals, one by Foster, and a variety of mostly underplayed standards (including Neal Hefti's "Two for the Blues," plus "Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most") and a surprisingly uptempo "Send In the Clowns." With pianist Kenny Barron, bassist Rufus Reid and drummer Marvin "Smitty" Smith offering stimulating support, this is an excellent showcase for the two Franks. A follow-up Concord set (Frankly Speaking) used the same personnel.
